[Ed. – Paging Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Your socialist paradise is ready.]
We’ve written how Venezuela is a socialist hellhole. The people are starving. It’s got to the point where people were eating out of garbage cans and breaking into zoosfor meat. Pets are being eaten. Children are resorting to prostitution for food. Medical supplies are dangerously low. It’s to the point where a couple of years ago, there were reports that hospitals were operating under 19th-century conditions. Of course, looting is rampant, crime is up, and to prevent the appearance of the country falling apart, there’s a new food police unit: it’s illegal to wait in line for the supermarket to open. With the country in an economic spiral downward, inflation has gone through the roof. The nation is a mess. You already know this. To add to the misery, families can no longer afford to bury their loved ones in caskets. They’re rented, returned, and the bodies are buried in plastic bags (via Fox News):
As the crisis in Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship deepens – gripped by mass hunger, starvation and a lack of medical supplies – there is no comfort even for the dead.
